      Pennsic looming now
      samurai donning armor
      with quiet repose...
      all shall serve best their master
      who lose life that they may serve

      pen strokes to the wife
      wet black marks on white paper
      brushing true feelings
      take care of the family
      and the children of my loins

      the drums start beating
      to gather all around them
      with their gear in hand
      soon we line in rank and file
      three sandals march shall we trod

      the fires at night burn
      with the fervor of demons
      summoning combat
      as morning glows we shall rise
      and take in hand sharpened tools

      arrows fly at dawn
      lodging in the chests of brave
      soldiers defiant
      yet standing to face the gods
      honorably standing ground



      Date Saburou Yukiie
      Yama Kaminari Ryu
      Shi wa hei to de aru - all are equal in the grave
